GRANDE PRAIRIE, ALBERTA (November 18, 2016): ANGKOR GOLD CORP. (TSXV: ANK and OTC: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or the “Company”) announces that the Company and Gravitas Securities Inc. have jointly agreed to cancel the Company’s proposed financing previously announced on August 16, 2016.

“Our canceling of the financing is due to our necessity to complete a NI 43-101 report on Mesco Gold’s property.  Working with the Gravitas team over the past few months has been an excellent experience,” stated Mike Weeks, CEO and Chairman of Angkor. “We look forward to continuing our relationship and working together again in the future.”

“As the rainy season appears to have subsided, Angkor is now proceeding with its exploration activity for the 2016-2017 dry season. Plans for the Banlung and Oyadao South licenses are moving forward.  Both areas are part of separate Joint-Venture agreements, and funding for these programs will be covered by our partners while all work will be completed by Angkor staff.”
Angkor will re-evaluate its financing requirements in the near future.

ANGKOR’s six exploration licenses in the Kingdom of Cambodia cover 1,352 km2, which the company has been actively exploring over the past 6 years. The company has now covered all tenements with stream sediment geochemical sampling and has flown low level aeromagnetic surveys over most of the ground. Angkor has diamond drilled 21,855 metres in 190 holes, augured 2643 metres over 728 holes, collected over 165,000 termite mound samples and ‘B’ and ‘C’ zone soil samples in over 20 centres of interest over a combined area of more than 140km2, in addition to numerous trenches, IP surveys and detailed geological field mapping. Exploration on all tenements is ongoing.

ANGKOR Gold Corp. is a public company listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange and is Cambodia’s premier mineral explorer with a significantly large land package and a first-mover advantage building strong relationships with all levels of government and stakeholders.
